Hair style helpers

Confession: I’m crap at doing my hair. So any well reviewed product that claims to minimize hair fuzz, add volume, shine or texture to my hair is probably going in my basket as we speak. Here are a few hair products that help my hair look styled and more polished in about 5 minutes.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray comes to no surprise to any self-respected beauty addict. Despite the hefty price tag and small quantity my hopes were exceptionally high. May be that’s why I was left a bit down. This spray leaves very light almost invisible white cast. It lifts up the roots and gives more textured look. Also it has light to medium hold. Hair does not look or feel crisp by any means. If your hair is past the “fresh looking hair” stage this product will not help the situation.

Argan Oil 5-Oil Miracle Shane Spray is essentially a heavily scented super shine spray. Hair does look healthier and instantly glossy. This spray is translucent so once in your hair there is no trace of it. Hair feels soft and naturally shiny. The scent is quite heavy so make sure you like it. The overpowering notes remind me of YSL Opium. For better results make sure you spray it from a good distance.

Living Proof Style Lab Instant Texture Mist is a good texturizing mist with a medium hold. Little goes a long way. Hair does not feel sticky or crisp but there is still a good medium hold. I would spray this mist only on my ends on dry hair. Again keep your distance when applying for equal distribution. Once on my hair I would gently scrunch my hair from under to create a natural looking waves. In case you are not happy with the result it brushes off quite easily and provides a good grip for up-dos, messy braids, basically anything you like.

John Frieda Touchable Memory hairspray is more of a hair spray but with some qualities of texturizing spray. It has a medium hold, it gives a good grip and body. It does not feel sticky and you can brush your hair to start over. There is not enough volume and texture to call it texturizing spray but this is definitely a good memorable hybrid. Did I say it comes in handbag size and it is also budget friendly?
